ESXI 5.1 deploy .OVF error
Posted on 2013-05-11
Hello All. I'm using EXSi 5.1. I performed an "export to .OVF template" on a windows 2008 R2 machine. Now when I try to use it to Deploy OVF template I receive an error from my vSphere Client that says:
"Failed to Deploy an OVF package. Incompatible device backing specified for Device 9"
I'd like to figure out if I can fix or remove whatever component/device is hanging up the deployment and maybe edit the .ovf file. Or worst case, if possible, use the 2 .vmdk files (1 for each disk on my virtual 2008 system) and bring my machine back from those.
What do you think?
